    PC shutting down after installing new video card

    Tried this this morning but unfortunately the PC still crashed. It seems like it was indeed a power supply problem; tried with an AX650 power supply this morning and it has been stable for over 1 hour so far (which is a good sign). Thanks everyone! :biggrin:

    PC shutting down after installing new video card

    I believe I have a friend who would be willing to lend me his Corsair AX650 power supply; however, I'm not sure if that'll be enough for my setup. I'll try this out tomorrow and I'll report the results here! Thanks!

    PC shutting down after installing new video card

    I have tried resetting the BIOS completely back to default settings (thus removing my overclock), and while it does help a bit - delaying the inevitable shutdown - it does not fix the problem entirely. However, I haven't tried reverting back to the GTX 970, but I've been playing graphically...

    PC shutting down after installing new video card

    Hello there, I recently purchased a GTX 980 Ti to replace my GTX 970. I've also been using an overclocked i7-4930K @ 4.5 GHz for more than a year now along with a X79-DELUXE motherboard, and prior to replacing the video card I have had absolutely zero problem with my PC. Now here's the thing...

    Help choosing video card for new build

    Thanks for the replies, I have decided to keep the GTX 780 Lightning after testing them both in my computer. Although the ROG Mars gets higher score in most benchmarks, I feel like it is NOT as smooth as my GTX 780 Lightning. For example, in Valley Benchmark on extreme setting, I would score...

    Help choosing video card for new build

    I fully agree with you; I would not have paid the 700$+ asking price for the ASUS ROG MARS, especially since a few GTX 780 Ti hover in this price range, and 2 GTX 760s would have also been cheaper. However, I have paid 450$, taxes and shipping included, which I believe is a fair price at this...

    Help choosing video card for new build

    Greetings, I have recently acquired from NCIX's online clearance sale the ASUS ROG MARS 760 video card at a pretty solid price. I wasn't planning on using it in my new build at first glance, seeing as I already own a MSI GTX 780 LIGHTNING which has served me well for more than 6 months already...

    Power supply dying?

    That makes sense, as 750w is the minimum wattage for GTX 680 SLI on NVIDIA's website, and as I also have a dedicated sound card, three hard disks, two dvd burners and a bunch of fans... :doh: Since I can't borrow my friend's PSU until the weekend, I tried downclocking both videocard by about...

    Power supply dying?

    Thanks for the replies :). Alright, I'll try to borrow my friend's power supply so I can test my rig before anything else. If the problem is still there, I suppose I'll try to borrow his motherboard afterwards too! Let's just hope he won't find me annoying for making him disassemble his PC...

    Power supply dying?

    Hello, I believe my power supply might be dying. This post is long, but I tried to describe the problem as best as I could, so thanks for reading :). A year ago I bought a fairly powerful computer. Here are the specs : CPU : Intel Core i7-3770k GPU-1 : GeForce GTX 680 2GB GPU-2 : GeForce GTX...

    Need help overclocking further

    Well I tried setting 9x 378 and it didn't work... I read a bit of the article on xbitlabs and searched Asus Maximus Formula overclocking on Google. I've been able to raise the vcore and ram voltage but when I set 1.4325v in the bios it shows 1.400v in CPU-Z! Which one is correct? Also is...

    Need help overclocking further

    It's currently at 55c / load. How far can I go? Is 60c-65c too much?

    Need help overclocking further

    I tried 1:1, and it worked! It's been stable for 2 hours in orthos @ 3.4 Ghz ( 8x 425 ). :biggrin: But still, my core/ram voltage is on auto. :blarg: I tried setting 1.3v, 1.375v and even 1.425v and it won't boot!

    8800GT SLI not better than 3870 CF?

    Not sure if this was posted already, but I've seen a review comparing HD 3870 CF and 8800GT SLI. 双卡火拼!HD3870 CF vs 8800GT SLI - 评测报告 - 超能网 The review shows that a single 8800GT outperforms a HD 3870, but a HD 3870 CF wins against 8800GT SLI.

    Need help overclocking further

    Need help choosing monitor

    I can't seem to make up my mind... I want a dell 24 inch but on dell.ca the estimated delivery time is 3 weeks... The 2407WFP-HC costs 700$, and almost 850$ with taxes and shipping, and people say it has color bleeding and a few problems, while the 2407WFP-A04 would cost 650$ shipped ( on ebay...

    Need help choosing monitor

    Hmm... that must be a dumb question but can I change the resolution ( 1920 x 1200 ) to something lower like 1440 x 900 without loosing image quality? I heard monitors only look great in their native resolution... My GPU is a bit outdated and i'm afraid I won't be able to run games smoothly (...

    Need help choosing monitor

    My old 19" crt won't last for long. For some reason the image turns pink every 5 minutes and I hate it :angry2: . I'm not sure which one I should buy, so I need some advice. I use it mostly for gaming, but I also watch movies from time to time, and I'd like to buy a Widescreen LCD. Anyway...

    Best Gaming Sound card

    Thanks for the replies, I'm going to use XP, Vista seems to have some performance issues in games. And for the Auzen X-FI sound card... if it comes out in a week, the cost will surely be higher than the others, but will it make a big difference? It looks like a really high-end sound card :shok: .
